OConnor upgrades Ultimate 2757 fluid head
OConnor has announced an upgrade to tis Ultimate 2757 fluid head. The 2575D offers improvements such as ergonomic changes to controls and more pan bar mounting points.
The relocation of all controls on the platform to the operator’s side (left) is designed to provide easier adjustment. The 2575D’s one-touch platform release lever allows for one finger or hand action to undo the safety catch and open the lever, speeding deployment and location changes in the field.
The upgraded platform now features dual platform scales — on one each side — and four handle rosettes to allow operation from either side of the head, as well as front or back handle mounting. The fluid head weighs 22.9lb and carries a 0lb to 87lb payload.
